(Press Release)Mar 01, 2010 – carNAVi is offering affordable and easy to use GPS Navigation Assistants for everybody, who needs a reliable system for finding their way on Philippine Roads or in Metro Manila’s street jungle.

Users will enjoy fast and reliable routing with voice prompted directions in English or Tagalog all over the Philippines, in selected countries* like Malaysia, Singapore, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam and even worldwide on major highways.

carNAVi’s new navigation systems are preloaded with detailed free maps covering the whole Philippines, Singapore and Malaysia with more than 150.000km of roads. The maps contains detailed  3D view including elevated flyover, multi-layer streets and buildings.

Whenever a re-routing is necessary, the software calculates within seconds a new route or detour to your desired destination. carNAVi devices calculate a reliable routing even from island to island, so the units can be used for trans-philippine highway driving!

Included are many thousands of Points of Interest (e. g. Restaurants, Shopping, Fuel Stations, ATM’s, Hotels, Hospitals, Drugstores etc).

Each unit comes with street search, city search and POI search function and do automatic routing with voice prompted direction commands to your destination.

Users can store own position marker (Waypoints), enter geographic coordinates i.e. for geocaching and the units are equipped with a track-log function. This makes it possible to view the logged data very easy i.e. in Google Maps or OpenStreetMap. The popular GPX -file format is supported.

Beside the navigation functions each new unit has unique multimedia functions, like a build-in MP3 player, a MP4 video player and a photo viewer. The Widescreen (4.3″) units comes with a build-in Bluetooth Handsfree Kit, so that you can make your phone calls in the car safely without handling your mobile phone.

These units are the first devices exclusively developed and manufactured for the Philippine market. Never before it was more affordable to own a personal navigation unit.

All GPS Navigation units will come ‘ready to run out of the box’. Accessories like a windshield mounting unit and a car power cable are already included.  Just unpack, wait for the free available satellite signal and start with your personal navigation assistant!
